Cameron Todd Willingham: Joe Gamso has a message for anyone who thinks that they will soon be granting a posthumous pardon to Cameron Todd Willingham; (Must, Must read, from a brilliant, tough, principled blogger. HL);

POST: "If you broke it, you should pay for it," by Joe Gamso, published on his superlative blog " Gamso for the defence: Commentary by an Ohio criminal defence lawyer,"  on April 5, 2014.

GIST: "Dog-bites-man news from the Times:  They won't be pardoning Cameron Todd Willingham anytime soon.*  What?  You thought they would?  You thought that Texas would admit that his conviction, death sentence, and execution for a crime that did not occur was a horrible - even if an understandable - mistake?  You thought Rick Perry's parole board would acknowledge that he wasn't a minister of justice when he signed off on Willingham's killing while the evidence that there was no crime (and therefore, duh, no criminal) was right in front of him?  You thought they'd say that he was just a stone killer? And they were too?"
(And that's just the start! HL)

The Star has a "topic" section which focuses on recent stories related to Dr. Charles Smith. It can be found at:
